Great game. Haven't tried with Kinect but will. Graphics get better and better. Crowds look great and so does the golfer. Best of all the Tiger Woods Legacy is Awesome!. Tiger was such a cute kid and it is great playing him while in his younger years, GREAT!
I played one round at augusta using just the kinect mode so this is the review
the use of the kinect feature alone is great, plus voice activation to make it as real life as you can get. And both work great, but of course its gonna have some flaw being its the first year. The harder you swing the further the ball goes, and once in a while you will swing or putt and the kinect will not read you completely and you will have to do the swing all over. who cares.
you can kneel down to see the green, or put your hand over your eyes to zoom in on the putt, just as life like as you can get and it makes it that much more fun to play.
courses are beautiful
people say the analog swing is such a hassle using the contrlloer but its spot on with kinect. maybe a little too perfect. all fairways in regulation, or maybe im that good.
THE PLAYER MODELS ARE RIDICULOUS!!!!!!
THE PLAYER MODELS ARE AS ANIMATED AS A SUPER NINTENDO GOLF GAME. cmon EA, really.
just standing there thru the loading screens waiting til you can swing with the kinect again, ankles start to hurt.
OVERALL:::: BUY THIS GAME, ESPECIALLY IF YOU ALREADY HAVE IT THRU GAMEFLY CAUSE ITS BRAND NEW AND 10 BUX OFF. STEAL!!!!!!

The Good: Similar to last years game with some great improvements. They added a more realistic swing system. It is easier to change your swining options as far as what type of shot you would like to hit, easier to customize it. There are a few new game modes including the "Tiger Legacy Challenge" where you relive Tigers earlier career, and "Skills Challenges" where you can complete challenges to earn EA points for your golfer. Graphics are good as they usually are, not fuzzy like 2011 version. It is also Kinect enabled which is fun.
The Bad: Golfers faces are kind of messed up in the sens of they are not detailed as they should be with the right technology. It's hard to create a gameface for your golfer.
The Kinect technology for the game is a bit off, but I am sure there will be an update to make corrections soon I hope. Still have to buy an online pass to play online without purchase, and the same goes for extra courses as in 2012 version.
Overall: I give it an 8 because the Kinect isin't as good as I thought it would be at least to start, and the gamefaces being off a bit is a little annoying. Also, the same old EA we want your money even though our game is $60 as well.
